Fox hunting has been a controversial sport for many years. Some people see it as a barbaric practice that should be banned, while others see it as a tradition that should be protected.
There is no doubt that fox hunting can be cruel. The dogs used in the sport can sometimes injure or even kill the foxes they are chasing. And the foxes themselves can suffer greatly during the chase, especially if they are caught and killed.
However, there are also many people who see fox hunting as a tradition that should be protected. They argue that it is an important part of British culture and that it helps to control the fox population.
Whatever your opinion on fox hunting, there is no doubt that it has been getting out of control in recent years. In some parts of the country, hunts have been known to kill foxes for fun, even when there are no foxes around to hunt.
This kind of behaviour is totally unacceptable and must be stopped. If fox hunting is to continue, it must be done in a safe and controlled way. Otherwise, it could be banned entirely.
Every year the number of foxes killed by hunters has been increasing. In 2019, for example, over 15 foxes were killed and hunt season alone saw 550 reports of illegal hunting, though these figures only represent known incidents in England alone.
There are several reasons for an increase. One is that there are now more hunts taking place than ever before. Another is that some hunts are using more dogs, which increases the chances of a fox being killed.
But the most likely reason for the increase in fox killings is that hunts are becoming more reckless and irresponsible. In some cases, they are even breaking the law.
